As 2014 album of the year front-runner Morning Phase (Capitol) refuses to budge from the top 40, Beck has extended his rapturously received current tour to include a August 90 date at Deer Lake Park.
As anyone who caught jaw-dropping recent turns at Coachella, Austin City Limits TV performance (to air this fall a date TBA in the venerable PBS series’ 40th anniversary season) or elsewhere can attest, Beck’s upcoming date is not be missed. A glance at the reviews of this most recent run easily puts them among the most enthusiastic raves of his — or anyone’s — career:
“Inside a three-tier-brimming ACL Live at the Moody Theater last night, from the first song to the last… Beck rocked the flock… hypnotized the hall… hard in lyric and voice, but cushioned by singer-songwriter intimacy… crescendoing into a Zeppelin-like stomp…. tapped serious delirium from both band and audience”–AUSTIN CHRONICLE
“Like a fisherman casting a lure, Beck on Sunday night offered a lesson in how to draw a tired, coming-down crowd and muster one more burst of adrenalin… In doing so, he presented a convincing argument as being a godfather to this holy Coachella mess, one in which said pop music sub genres could not only live harmoniously but also spawn a new vibe”-LOS ANGELES TIMES
“Stunning… a glorious sampler, as sonorously rich as his brilliant new album”-OC REGISTER
“A classic, spontaneous Beck performance”-ROLLING STONE 50 Best Things We Saw At Coachella 2014
